Speaking of tomato power....

Sun Damaged Skin? Eat Tomatoes! Foods rich in lycopene help ward off sun damage. Call them age spots if you want, but the truth is, those dark marks on your skin are less about age, more about sun damage. Yes, sadly all those years frying in the sun have major consequences! Your first move should be to wear high-grade SPF from now on, but you can also boost your skin’s natural protective ability by eating lycopene, a carotenoid found in red and pink produce. (Tomatoes, watermelon, red peppers—pick your poison.) One study found that eating 2.5 tablespoons of lycopene-packed tomato paste every day for 10 weeks made subjects 40% less susceptible to sunburn! And as for your youth spent sunbaking in the yard—don’t panic. Chemicals in green tea called polyphenols can help to reverse existing sun damage. Drink two to three freshly-brewed cups a day (about 250 mgs of polyphenols) and just vow to be more sun-savvy going forward. Source: youbeauty.com
